Dial Meow For Murder
Dial Meow for Murder (Lucky Paws Petsitting Mystery) - Bethany Blake

This is book 2 in the series by Bethany Blake. It is Halloween and Daphne has moved into the old caretaker's cabin. She has shown up at the old Flynt Mansion to help sell her dog treats to help raise funds for the dog rescue. Her mother is having a fit in the mansion as the owner cannot be found and her cat is running around and the place is a mess. Finally, Daphne, trying to catch the cat finds the body of Lillian Flynt and then takes in her terror of a cat. 


She and Jonathon are becoming better friends and he has formed a good relationship with Artie and Axis (the two dogs from the previous book that she convinced him to adopt). His ex-wife has moved to the area and seems to be trying to have a relationship with him. Her sometimes boyfriend is trying to have a serious conversation with him. 


Along the way, she finds another body and finds the real murderer. 


Pretty good story and Daphne is starting to become more dependable, but still flighty. I do recommend reading the stories in order and there is a 3rd book on the way in the spring.

Murder at the Mansion
Murder at the Mansion: A Victorian Village Mystery (Victorian Village Mysteries) - Sheila Connolly

I’m a sucker for small town mysteries and when you have a mysterious mansion at the center of it all, well, you’ve got my attention. And this was an enjoyable read, with a likable main character in Kate; she’s a level-headed and unflappable sleuth and romantic interest Josh made for a good sidekick and added a sprinkle of romance. I liked the plot, surrounding a remarkably well-preserved mansion built a century ago by the mysterious Henry Barton and a very unlikable local woman who is found dead on the front steps. The intrigue kept me turning pages, although I feel like the endless rehashing that happened in every chapter killed the pace a little; with a bit of editing, this book would be a lean, mean intrigue machine. As it is, I’m completely sucked into the whole Henry Barton mystery, so I will be back for the second book and can’t wait to watch Kate’s vision for the town evolve into a reality.

Reading progress update: I've read 40 out of 373 pages.
A Princess in Theory: Reluctant Royals - Alyssa Cole

I'm reading this for the Red Group's Orient Express crime scene card. Obsidian Blue correctly guessed it, so it's already a known crime scene. It works for the card because Prince Thabiso spends a lot of his time flying. In fact, when readers first meet him he's on a plane to New York.


I'm really enjoying this book so far. Naledi, aka Ledi, was bounced around in foster care and is currently a grad student who's juggling lab work with at least two jobs. I don't blame her at all for deleting those "you are betrothed to a prince" emails. Take a look at the ending of this one:


"...although I believe you to be the rightful recipient of this email, before I can introduce you to Prince Thabiso after this long absence, I will need more information. Please provide a scan of your license, passport, or other form of ID; your current address; social security number--" (3)


And they wonder why she didn't respond. I haven't seen much of Thabiso yet, but I liked his reaction to Ledi's one and only response to the emails.
